D40 Test

Just bought a Nikon D40 DSLR.  Since today I had an exam, I just did one test to it: night shooting in my very dim room.

My room

Shot with the lens in package, under 18mm, aperture-priority, f/3.5, 1/6s, ISO1600.  And white-balanced in Photoshop, because I only have two light bubbles that emit yellow white lights.   A portion of the 100% image is here.  I'm more than satisfied with this photo because

  1. My room is very dim, very very dim.
  2. This was shot under ISO1600, which means D40’s high ISO is awesome.
  3. I can hold this camera steadily enough.
